A conversation with Kevin Kelly

While at the Web 2.0 conference Kevin Kelly was musing aloud on ways in which our web culture encourages new attitudes toward social-isms. We are constructing Socialism 2.0, he joked. Joshua Ross of O’Reilly media filmed the conversation. Other topics covered in this rambling encounter: the thin line between the wisdom of the hive mind and stupidity of the mob; the difference defaults make; what technology wants; how technological evolution differs from biological evolution, and living in an always-on society.
